Consumer complaints and reviews about Aircel

May 5, 2010

Caller tune charges

You might have attended to any promotional calls or messages unknowingly which has resulted in the activation. In future you can avoid such instances by getting your DND Service activated . Good luck.

Worst service from Aircel.

I am also one of the FRUSTRATED customer of Aircel!

The major issue 'm facing is with Roaming facility.

Last four days I was on kerala, and as soon as I left the HOME network from TN and entered to Kerala, my mobile has not gone to the Roaming mode, and stopped incoming & outgoing calls.

In the past also I had faced this problem, with reference to that I decided to talk to the concerned people.

Today I returned to my home location and I called up customer care and my day has become useless due to the non response from these people. Even customer care person is least interested to reveal his name and giving the complaint number.


If you are person who is on ROAMING frequently, before opting AIRCEL think thrice no no 100 times

Worst service from Aircel.

This is strange, even I have been using it for quite a while now and so far my experience has been very good. I would suggest you to visit the nearest Aircel store and discuss it with them, which I generally do and trust me it works most of the time.

complaint against krishnagar distributor,tm ad,tsm

I am the owner of m/s Sucharita Enterprise, last 22 days ago I had submitted 3 documents against 3 sim(new activation). But already its 22 days left those sim dose not activated.For these reason I informed the distributor point to take some step to activate them . But it very embarased to say you that they dose not take any proper step. And now the customers become very iritated and throwing some very poor language to me. When I am calling the TM,TSM,AD they are not receving my phone calls. So I bound to send this e-mail to you. That either you take a proper step against them or I will be bound to take some legal step against the caompany with the customer in consumer foroum.
Thanking You

Pathetic customer service

I have been trying to get my ISD refund from Aircel service (Rs.1500) for last 1.5 months. Very first response that my request is forwarded to concerned team and it will be resolved in 40 working days. After one month, I have requested to know the status, then i was mentioned to wait for 48 hours.
Later, it is moved to concerned team, they will get back at the earliest.

For everything, we are asking to send mail to [email protected] and the response is pathetic and sick.

Airtel and Vodafone are the best. Sick of Aircel service and customer service.

They said they'll credit the amount by 5/12/2012 but they didn't. I called again on 7/12/2012 and asked for the status they said it'll be credited within 36 hours but i didn't get any credit. I called again on 10/12/2012 and asked about the credit now they said that it was activated by me and I'll not get credited. I asked them to connect to their higher officials they said they'll connect and I waited for an hour, but i heard only the music no one responded , I called again but the same happened.

Poor Customer Care Service, Uneven tariff

Very poor response from the Customer Care. I directly went to the main Aircel showroom, Spencer plaza, Chennai. I asked for the last dialed call list of the October month. They said it will be mailed to you within 15 days. But yet I didn't get any mail or SMS till now.

VAS charges

Im using Nokia 1100, each month Im getting charges for internet usage for the past 5 months.
When I raised complaint, they close the request without reversal after promising reversal.

My phone numbers :

Each month Rs.98/- is charged for each number. a total of Rs.490/- per number for 5 months.
Now for 9283786786, I have got a update saying reversal of Rs.220/-, not sure untill I get a bill. Which should have been Rs.490/-
No information yet for the other 2 numbers.

When contacted customer care today, they are saying I have given request(activation) for internet which is the usual thing with customer care, which I have not given any request(activation).

They are saying they will give a reversal of Rs.394/- for the other 2 numbers in the next bill.

Who should I contact to get a complete reversal of the charges. A total of 1470/-

Amount Refund

Hi Team,

Good day!!

I am Rajadurai.
I am a loyal customer of Aircel, I have been using Aircel SIM card for almost 4 years. My number:9941376269 I had a balance of rs 30(approx) on 12th Nov'12 and I sent around 40 messages to my friends. I have msg booster pack which is activated on Nov'12 beginning Rs.33(One month validity). But they charged for all my messages and my balance showed Rs.0.36/-. Immediately I called the Aircel customer service and asked the charged amount, but they said still not updated in system so let you can call tomorrow for check that details. So, again I called on 13th Nov'12 and got the same answer. Then, I called on 13th Nov'12 and spoke with one lady explained about this issue with details. They accepted that the mistake happened from their end and said will refund the amount which was charged for the messages. The complaint no received from Aircel is ############on the same day. Then the next day 14th I received a message from them stated "Reference number has been resolved on 14/11/2012. Manage your account online at aircel.com" Till date I didn't get the refund amount from them. Hence, I called them on 19th for this, but they are simply saying we won't charge anything on 12th and even it charged for message won't refund the amount. The most one is I received a worst reply from them. they are not even know how to answer the customer. Eg: One lady replied and suddenly disconnected the call. She doesn't allow me to speak. I must want my amount which they charged for that.

Comsumer Exploitation



I am writing with frustration about the Poor Service provided by Aircel. Not just poor service due to inability of Aircel Employees to understand any issue but also Consumer exploitation to the highest level.

My Number: 99419 10995

Let me describe the problem.

I am using postpaid service from Aircel. On 22nd Sep 20102, I activated 3G after speaking to customer service agent who asked me to activate 3G service by sending an SMS. I request to add 3G pack (Rs.198 for 1G for 3G Pack) which was activated on 24th Sep 2012. The Customer Service Agent also told me on the phone that on activation of 3G Services (not 3G pack), I will be getting FREE 250 MB of 3G Data and 50 Mins of Video Calling. I used the Free 250 MB 3G Data between 22nd Sep 2012 and 24th Sep 2012 before the activation of 3G pack. On 24th Sep, 3G pack was activated however I got an SMS saying my bill amount is Rs. 3700 plus. When I escalated this to Corporate Care of Aircel, they first denied but later reverted the amount on 26th Sep 2012.

I do have the email proof that on 26th Sep 2012, my unbilled amount was Rs. 238. However, the billing cycle ended on 5th Oct and I have been again charged for the usage of 3G between 22nd Sep and 24th Sep. The amount was reverted on 26th Sep with Email proof. But the Customer Care is refusing to waiver the amount which was already waivered on 26th Sep. Aircel is simple repeating like an answering machine over emails and phone calls that my 3G usage has been authenticated and the charges are valid. The reversal amount of Rs 3700 plus is not shown in my bill that was generated on 5th Oct 2012 as well. I do have the email proof with the series of email.

I keep getting the same reply that they cannot revert the amount since I have used 3G before the activation of 3G pack (between 22nd Sep and 24th Sep 2012). But I was offered FREE 250 MB of 3G data. Aircel once reverting the amount on 26th Sep and again charging the same amount at the end of billing cycle is not at all acceptable.

On top of this, my outgoing gets barred 2 to 3 times a day and I need to call and explain the issue everytime to agents and supervisors who are just equal to an answering machine just like the Aircel Corporate Care ([email protected]).

I cannot pay the bill until the amount of Rs.3900 (for 3G usage alone) is waived.

I want to escalate this to the highest level. If Aircel cannot revert the amount, I do not need the service of Aircel and my number can be disconnected. I am not ready to pay the huge amount towards the services that have been offered to me for Free.

Thank you for understanding.

Kindly request you to take necessary action and get my amount reverted.

Aircel Postpaid excess billing


I am Elamparithi, i have taken an Aircel Postpaid connection holding the number 9841283841, in the Year of 2003 and i paid my last month bill on 11th of Sep 12 and soon after this i got my outgoing bared without any intimation of any kind what so ever on 11th June itself. With my inquiry i have came to know that due to my excess internet usage over 3G, my connection has been barred and to my shock my bill was Rs 2423/- Rs, again I had received a message from Aircel on 13th Sep 12 Morning stating that to pay 4500/- RS the big surprise is I don't have any incoming and out going facility till 13 th morning. and I am very much aware that my mobile's credit limit was Rs1000 and also I never been used my phone for internet usage.

I have been talking to several people from Aircel to have this problem resolved at any cost but i haven't met any person taking my problem seriously.

I have requested them to provide the itemized bill to know the actual usage of my number but until now I didn't got it

I sent several mails to them but until now my problem was not sorted out

I have all the mail proof with me and ready to provide the same.

Poor customer service


Am having mobile connection with Aircel network, for the past three weeks i could not able to use for incoming/outgoing through my mobile due to the PUK code issue. I called up with customer care many time but the result is still zero. All the excutives are saying the first word as "sorry for the inconvenience, i will help you to resolve this issue" they keep saying some time limits to get solve this issue. Finally i dont know whether i could able to get the PUK from them or not.... Unfortunately i have recharge some 150 ruppes inbetween.

My number 9094763335 (Aircel)
Alternate number 9884049030.

I had very bad experience with Aircel network ... The customer care which is not feasible to reach there is so many restriction which i dont face in my alternate vodafone network... i prefer you just spend only 19 rupees to change your network before you get this sutiation.

Micro-sim 3G for iPhone with Unnecessary VAS charge added

I was forced to buy a new Aircel micro-sim for my iPhone with 3G facility. Though i was already using my postpaid connection for over 4 years, i was told that i need to get a new number. That's why i quote it as forced. I'm now the forced bearer of the aircel number 9941550111.

My credit limit is 1000 and my plan is 218.18. I was told that the first year 3G would be unlimited and free. But the monthly charge (last month) was close to 8000 Rupees.

Not sure why. the bill split-up shows that it's because of the VAS charge. Infact there's no certain service that i used using my 3G connection. I was rather using my WIFI connection to do any service related work.

Also i was not told that the credit limit is exceeded. This is a serious issue and i was made to ask my colleagues and company not to use Aircel service.

Your response and action is appreciated.
